SONOR ANNOUNCES THE ONE OF A KIND SERIES LIMITED SNARE DRUMS
SONOR, proudly celebrating a tradition of 140 years of excellence has announced the launch of the Limited Edition One of a Kind snare drums to be introduced at Winter NAMM 2015. These limited drums are the top of the line of the SONOR snare program and honour the long tradition of exiting veneers and innovative instruments within the company's history.
Each series features an extremely limited run of special designed snare drums with spectacular natural grown veneers and new shell designs. For each edition a certain tree has been selected with the goal in mind to only use the most exiting parts of the grain and set them to perfectly set vertical grain patterns. Vertical outside veneer grains have been introduced through SONOR in 1973 and are the companies trademark ever since.
All veneers are sourced at specialized suppliers in Germany, which guarantee that these trees come from environment friendly sources and are exported/ imported legally.
The instruments badges highlight laser cut mallet shaped logos, made out of the same veneer that is used on the snares itself.
Each One Of A Kind snare drum is delivered in a hard case, made to SONOR's specification and includes a personal 'welcome to the SONOR family' package.
